Scottish piper Fred Morrison, famed for his passionately expressive style visits Paisley Arts Centre this May!

Fred Morrison

About Fred Morrison

Although Morrison was born and raised near Glasgow, it’s the celebrated Gaelic piping tradition of his father’s native South Uist, in the outer Hebrides, that forms the bedrock of his intensely expressive, uniquely adventurous style. His outstanding technical prowess saw him winning many top competition prizes while still at school, meanwhile being inspired by pioneering acts like the Bothy Band and the Tannahill Weavers. Although his first-love instrument remains the great Highland bagpipes, over the years his mastery has expanded to encompass whistles, Scottish smallpipes, or reelpipes – Morrison being a pivotal populariser of this once-rare variety – and Irish uilleann pipes.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Fred Morrison are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
